I was lucky enough to win not one but TWO cruises, in just three days! I couldn’t believe my luck and since then I’ve decided to enter every cruise competition I can find on the internet.
I decided to create this list of every online cruise competition to make it easier for others to find cruise competitions and enter them online as well. I’ve even provided the answers to any quiz questions for you. Although I can’t guarantee that they’re correct! If you happen to be lucky enough to win a cruise for two and don’t have anyone to take, just shout this way because I’d love to come. Haha!

Competitions with text and postal entries
Some cruise competitions are only open to people entering via text or post. I usually don’t enter these as there is a charge to enter by text and I think that entering by post is a bit of a faff. If I ever have to post anything it usually stays in my handbag for a few weeks until I pass a post box!
However, if you’d like to enter the competitions too, then please go ahead. The links to the competition details are below.
